This song was written on a porch in Gasquet, CA while being stared at by a friendly golden retriever named Keeper.


Oooh, oooh
Oooh, oooh

I want a smile, give me a smile
Give me a smile, I haven’t seen one in a while
This boat starts to think, if I only had a drink
All the salt in the water, whoa

Oh, I want to see in a better light
But all I have is what I know…

I want the love, give me the love
Give me the love, please don’t hang it high above
Through the curtain I can see you want to rescue me
I’m not the one stuck in the branches of a tree

Oh, I want to feel that it will be right
Through the ups and downs and the lows…

Oooh, oooh
Oooh, oooh

I want some peace, just a piece of the peace
Give me some peace, I’ll be standing on my feet
Show me your stars, turn out the lights
The city can go without for a night

Mama told me life doesn’t come easy
Guess I better find some light in the night
Don’t have any monsters under my bed, the demons live in my head
Hey, yeah…
I’ll tell you somethin’ about feelin’ alone
All of those somethin’s live in your dome

Lookin’ at a dog, lookin’ at a dog
Lookin’ at a dog, and he’s lookin’ at me...
